31st March 2012, in partnership with Al-Sarwar Foundation, we setup a free pain management camp in Lehri, Jhelum. All the Doctor’s, Nurses and local volunteers provided their services free of charge to over 390 people that were treated. The ambulances were utilised to bring people from their local villages to the camp site and in case of an emergency the patient was taken direct to the Hospital in the main city.
Objectives for the Free Medical Camp
- Provide medical service and consultation to the villagers at their doorstep
- Provide quality medicines, vitamins, antibiotics free of charge
- Increase awareness of basic hygiene and preventative health care;
- Determine the percentage of most common diseases among the villagers and assess their most pressing medical needs
The volunteer Doctor’s, Nurse’s and organizers used the camp as an opportunity to raise awareness on basic medical issues, hygienic and unhygienic behaviors, and preventative health care. The villagers responded positively to the discussions and expressed their appreciation that an effort was being made to bring attention to such issues. Overall, the medical camps ran smoothly and were deemed a success by all involved.
MW Trust is grateful to Al-Sarwar Foundation without whom this camp was not possible, they made all arrangements and provided all the Doctor’s, Nurse’s and local volunteers. Food was served to each and every patient that attended the camp.
Our sincere gratitude and thanks to Al-Sarwar Foundation, Mr Aijaz Kiyani, Brig. Dr Asif Gul Kiyani and all the local people who gave their time without them it would not been possible to have such a successful Medical Camp
